3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The pour is pale copper. The head is thick and white. The aroma is mostly floral and quite pungent, revealing a good bit of hops. The taste has the body of a pilsner or lager with the bite of an IPA. The finish lingers not unpleasantly. This stuff is interesting and perhaps addictive.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured as a 2 oz sampler at Virginia Beer Live 2013. Hops in the middle, nutmeg in the finish? Tastes a bit light, but probably a good choice for hot summer days.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
July 2010. Sampled at the brewery. A lighter version of a pale ale - seem more watery, but I guess for a Summer ale, that is OK, just not my kind of beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the tap room. The beer is a hazy yellow-orange color with a medium foamy white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing. Aroma of biscuit malt and grassy hops. Light-bodied with flavors of bready malt and mildly bitter herbal hops. The finish is lightly bitter with a grassy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very clear golden pour wtih minimal ring of white head. Smells lightly grassy and ’clean’ and hints of grain that become more prevalent on the flavor. A slight butteriness, but nothing even close to offensive. Mild grassy hoppiness with a pleasant smooth finish. Semi-crisp. Pretty easy drinker. Good replacement for a budlight. Not so good as a pale ale.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sample from a bottle. Light bodied; citrus; slight fruity sweetness. I can see why the brewer calls it a thirst-quencher.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from the brewery. Pretty mild, sweet aroma that reminds me of corn and light grain. Flavor again was light and notes of sweet grain; a little soapy. Meh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is grainy with hay like hops and a touch of corn. The appearance is amber gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall this is a decent beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Slightly darker pour than a pale lager. Nose hints at citrus hops. A crisp, clean flavor mostly featuring sharp bitterness. Not memorable, but refreshing in warm weather. I'd buy this again.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap. Pours a clear light amber with a small white head that dissipates quickly with some lacing. Aroma is of grain and a little grass/wheat with a bit of sweetness. Taste is grainy/grassy with a bitter, almost metallic finish.
